Next Saturday, March 13, 2010 Pruning for Safety and Health of Trees, targeted for backyard woodlot owners. Lots of space still available for that one with 9 people registered out of a maximum class size of 30.
And finally, March 25, 2010, Can I Wash Dishes With Insecticidal Soap? – a general public introduction to integrated pest management techniques and pesticide safety for the home and garden. We have 13 signed up for that one, and can take 25.
March Lunch and Learn for Master Gardeners – Entomology 101 – March 17th 10:00-1:00. Very useful if you’re covering the hotline and are worried about giving advice to people bringing in bug samples. This class is intended to learn the basics of insect ID, with an emphasis on household pests, and the common ones we get in the office.
